With Telops’ Hyper-Cam Methane
Quebec, Canada — Telops is proud to contribute to a significant breakthrough in dynamic quantitative methane imaging!
Using Telops’ Hyper-Cam Methane, researchers from Linköping University in Sweden were able to achieve remote mapping of methane at high sensitivity.
The Hyper-Cam technology, through spectral analysis of each pixel, allowed them to identify methane emissions within a scene with great accuracy.
Since the Hyper-Cam Methane is “much more sensitive than anything that has come before“, it is ideal for detecting methane even in very small amounts.

Hyper-Cam Methane: the most sensitive detection there is
The Telops’ Hyper-Cam Methane is an optimized hyperspectral imaging system that enables passive detection and identification of methane over great distances.
The Hyper-Cam technology offers the best spectral resolution and sensitivity on the market.
Its highly accurate spectral measurements allow for efficient atmospheric corrections, which leads to precise mapping of methane concentrations.
- Rapid visualization of leaks and emissions
- Detection of small quantities of methane (1 ppm, depending on the environmental conditions) due to high sensitivity
- Passive monitoring of vast areas
